In the Domain of Lake Monsters: The Search for the Denizens of the Deep by John Kirk
A fascinating survey of the "unknown animals of outlandish size" that lurk in lakes and oceans around the world, and one that will appeal to both the converted and the curious. The book includes a complete, comprehensive listing of sightings, organized by geography. John Kirk is no stranger to skeptics and the cynical media, and is himself critical of some past lake-creature claims. He became a believer after a visit to British Columbia, where he learned of Ogopogo, a legendary denizen of Okanagan Lake. Together with the newly formed British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, he would pursue Ogopogo for years.
